The future first lady

Posted By on Sat, Dec 8, 2007 at 7:03 AM

Linda Douglass interviews Janet Huckabee. Among the topics -- packing heat.

Douglass: And you are something of a marksman. You have a concealed-weapon carrying permit as does the governor, is that correct?

Huckabee: I do. I would hardly say I'm a marksman. I definitely would not go that far. But again, I've had my concealed-weapon license for quite a while -- I've actually had mine longer than my husband. It's something that, I think, if you're going to have a weapon, you should go learn how to shoot it.

Douglass: I guess the question was, why a concealed weapon?

Huckabee: Well, because if you have one in your vehicle or something and it's under your seat, if you don't have a license you could be in serious trouble. I've traveled across the country with two females. I think it's a dangerous situation that perhaps you could be stranded. There's, to me, nothing wrong with being able to protect yourself.
